    Thanks in advance. Building a streaming box for a friend. Would prefer to use B450 for lower cost over X570. Thanks!

    if you happen to live near a Microcenter store, they are labeling the boards that came with 3000-compatible firnware or have been flashed in-store with 3000 firmware. Look for the sticker on the box

    That's a pretty sweet customer service, assuming it's a good and stable bios.

    It has to be mentioned, but many do. Some are selling some boards they mention preflashed, others are making an option for every board.

    If they have to boot the board with a cpu to flash it .. means a little bit of work .

    Going to MC later today, hopefully they have some 3K ready or pre-flashed boards.

    They should. My son and I bought a MSI Tomahawk B450 with a 3600 at MC a couple of weekends ago.

    So I went and can confirm most if not all of the boards were Ryzen 3000 ready.
